Sorry for mentioning the 'C' word but I've only got a couple of months left on maternity and really want to make the most of the time with the baby and toddler (2.5).

Anyone got any nice and easy Christmas craft activities I could do with my toddler? Baby is 10 months and likes getting involved too. Also what traditions as a family do you do on Christmas Eve? I the idea of establishing some while the kids are young. TIA.

There's a really cute Christmas card which you do with finger painting. Toddler does a few finger prints, then you Sharpie marker black lines to turn it into a string of fairy lights.

Pinterest is your friend!

Not much else to add but we did a santa hand print card. Stuck some sticky stars on and it was very much appreciated by dad on Christmas day.

I'm planning to make some paper chains with mine! That's my only idea so watching with interest...

Salt dough decorations , visit to see santa, an evening walk to see people's Christmas lights, reading Christmas stories , making some chocolates or cupcakes

I do an advent activity calendar so it’s a little thing each day to feel festive. Simple things like going to the library and reading a Christmas story, making mince pies, some good ideas on Pinterest for Christmas decorations, putting on Christmas music and dancing around, a winter walk to find mistletoe,

I love some of these! I am going to try and do the festive activity advent calendar! I find Pinterest a bit daunting as I'm not very artsy or crafty. Will look up some card ideas. Thanks hive minds!
